Joanna Lubońska is a visual artist who has been exploring the use of found objects and recycled materials to create surreal immersive environments. Joanna graduated from the University of Silesia in Cieszyn, Poland with an MA degree in Artistic Education in the Field of Fine Arts, and has exhibited various works since resettling in her current home of Edinburgh in 2007. Her most recent project “The Plastic Vortex”, highlighted the fact that we live in an age of mass production in a throw away society which is becoming an ever increasing problem to our environment. Through her work Joanna aims to find new ways of working with throw away materials, using her skills as a sculptor and set designer to create immersive sensory experiences.
POLYMER CAVE – Sensory Room
For this project Joanna plans to re-use materials already classed as trash, and transform a dark and empty space into a space filled with ambient lights and nature sound. Through repetition and multiplication the fluid structures will create a biomorphic form creating order and aesthetic harmony resulting in an environment for little ones to explore, relax and de-stress from the constant stimulation of everyday life. Through this installation young people can have fun and learn about the potential of creating beautiful objects from everyday consumables such as plastic bottles, cups or bubble wrap.
